We're not using that many products within Oracle Cloud Platform, but nevertheless I can recommend it. Especially when it comes to the Database as a Service, which we use a lot. I can easily vouch for that if you are looking for good database performance. In addition, if any companies or clients are currently using Oracle Database on-premises, I can certainly recommend that they migrate to Oracle Cloud Database. I would rate Oracle Cloud Platform an eight out of ten.

It's one of the best databases in the market. We've found it to be very stable in the new versions. You can plug it into other services easily. As a database solution, it's been very good and you can implement it very quickly. Overall, I would rate the product at a nine out of ten.

We're Oracle partners. We're using the current version of the solution. The solution has very good infrastructure. They are being very aggressive as they want to expand their footprint. In a few years, they will compete in a more balanced way against AWS and Microsoft and Google as well. Overall, I would rate the solution six out of ten. As it matures, it will become much better and be much more competitive.

My organization is just an Oracle customer. I've been very impressed with the solution. It's a very good platform. I'm unsure which version of the solution we're currently using. I'd advise others to move to Oracle Cloud. If they have a medium-sized business, it would work for you pretty well. However, it's not a mature solution yet and needs a few more years to grow and build out features on the cloud that currently only exist in the on-premise deployment. Overall, I would rate the solution seven out of ten.

I do recommend the Oracle Cloud Platform. I recommend it for our use and we also do Oracle consulting. We use Oracle and we also recommend Oracle products. On a scale from one to ten where one is the worst and ten is the best, I would rate this product as eight and one-quarter. It is better than an eight, but not so close to nine.

I'd rate the solution seven out of ten. We're new to the cloud, so we need more time to evaluate its capabilities.

We run different applications on the Oracle Cloud platform and use the cloud deployment model. We use the solution quite extensively on a daily basis. Oracle is a good option for enterprise-level companies, but for small and medium-sized businesses, I'd recommend another option. I'd rate the solution six out of ten.

We have some customers with private cloud services where they own the machines. We also work with customers that utilize the public cloud from Oracle for deploying applications and databases. I would rate Oracle products overall at an eight out of ten but this product at a seven out of ten simply because of not being able to easily deploy to other technologies.

My advice would be, if you have enough to invest in Oracle, I would recommend going for it. If an organization has OBI, Oracle Business Intelligence reporting platform, which is quite mature, and they want to move into cloud, Oracle's a good fit for them because it's easier to move. If you don't have anything set and you don't have that much of investment in Oracle, I wouldn't recommend it. I would recommend Amazon because of the sheer fact that it's a much more stable integration. You get a lot more options. You can play a lot more in terms of upscaling or downscaling the solution. I would rate it a six or seven out of ten.

My advice to others would be to take more time to deploy and to try and automate the deployment process. Due to the lack of proper documentation and complexity, as well as the poor tech support, I will rate this solution a six out of ten.

I would give the solution a rating of 8 out of 10. I would like it if maybe they could create a curriculum for Java, if they can integrate a curriculum for learning Java specifically, for the certification. The Oracle certification for Java. I'm using it to teach kids how to code.

If people are looking for a cloud solution I recommend Oracle, but there is one thing which is very challenging to us: with Oracle, there are many options packages. You can get extreme performance and other things, but it's really costly and that needs to be paid extra for on the plan. Overall, I give Oracle Cloud Platform an 8/10. Because our consultant showed us how to use Oracle for our service, that was very beneficial. From the team I come from for my product support also I can say 8/10 for OCP.
